I read today that adults learn best when they are presented with a disorienting dilemma. And we have the perfect disorienting dilemma here.
For on the one hand we have a personality test which teaches us the type we are and how to accept different types in others.
But on the other hand we have a bogus personality test which teaches us to reify ourselves and others.
This is fabulously disorienting. And for adults disorientation is a sign learning is taking place.
Of course learning is an acquired taste and we can't expect it to be to the taste of everyone.
And learning does not increase the size of anyone's brain but it does increase the connections between the neurons.
I must admit I like learning new things because when I discover something new, it is as though I am scratching an itch in my mind. And I find it exquisitely pleasurable.
And I would like to share this pleasure so, as you have noticed, I present a disorienting dilemma for your pleasure.
My guess is that this dilemma can't be resolved by applying logic. It can only be resolved by changing ourselves.
For this is what learning is. It is simply a matter of changing our minds.
What do you think?
